I'm thinking that the idea that Emacs is predominantly text-based system
(with an optional gui front-end) prevents it from being a viable option
for appealing to the common user. It also makes it harder to support
word processor-y type things like fonts, graphics etc. What I'm thinking
is something like Emacs only providing the functionality and a similar
GUI type interface to apps like gnumeric, evolution, gimp, galeon etc
etc all within the one app (with the appropriate mode loaded).
